SUBJ/TROPICAL CYCLONE FORMATION ALERT 061421Z MAR 99//
RMKS/
1. IMMEDIATE DELIVERY REQ TO AMEMBSSY PORT LOUIS
2. FORMATION OF A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE IS POSSIBLE WITHIN
180 NM EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM 14.6S1 104.5E0 TO 16.2S9 89.5E2
WITHIN THE NEXT 06 TO 24 HOURS.  AVAILABLE DATA DOES NOT JUSTIFY
ISSUANCE OF NUMBERED TROPICAL CYCLONE WARNINGS AT THIS TIME.
WINDS IN THE AREA ARE ESTIMATED TO BE 20 TO 25 KNOTS. METSAT
IMAGERY AT 061130Z1 INDICATES THAT A CIRCULATION CENTER IS
LOCATED NEAR 14.5S0 101.4E6.  THE SYSTEM IS MOVING WEST-
SOUTHWESTWARD AT 14 KNOTS.
3. REMARKS:
ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES DEEP CONVECTION
ASSOCIATED WITH THIS PERSISTENT DISTURBANCE HAS ORGANIZED INTO TWO
AREAS NORTH AND SOUTH OF THE SYSTEM CENTER. UPPER-LEVEL OUTFLOW
IS GOOD TO THE NORTHWEST, FAIR ELSEWHERE IN AN ENVIRONMENT OF
WEAK EASTERLY WIND SHEAR. THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A
SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN 24 HOURS IS GOOD.

REMARKS:
070900Z6 POSITION NEAR 15.3S9 96.4E9.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 26S HAS DEVELOPED SOUTHWEST OF JAVA IN THE
SOUTHERN INDIAN OCEAN. POSITION BASED ON ANIMATED VISIBLE AND
INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE
CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES INDICATE THE SYSTEM TO BE NEAR 30 KTS.
THE SYSTEM HAS DEVELOPED INCREASED CONVECTION OVER THE LAST 6 HOURS
AND HAS GOOD OUTFLOW ALOFT. UW-CIMSS DIVERGENCE PRODUCT INDICATES
TC 26S IS IN AN AREA OF WEAK TO MODERATE VERTICAL WINDSHEAR,
HOWEVER THE BULK OF THE CONVECTION IS DEVELOPING TO THE SOUTHWEST
OF THE FIX POSITION. FORECAST TRACK WILL FOLLOW ALONG A SIMILAR
TRACK AS TC 25S (DAVINA)TO THE WEST-SOUTHWEST. INTENSITY IS
EXPECTED TO DEVELOP SLOWLY FOR THE NEXT 24-36 HOURS AND THEN MORE
RAPIDLY AS IT MOVES ALONG IN THE WAKE OF DAVINA AND ESTABLISHES
BETTER ORGANIZATION. WIND RADII ARE GREATER TO THE SOUTHWEST DUE TO
STRONGER PRESSURE GRADIENT AND CONVECTION IN THS SEMI-CIRCLE.
JUSTIFICATION FOR CORRECTION: 35 KT WIND RADII IN ANAL, 12, AND 24
HOUR POSITIONS WERE GIVEN AS 9999 NM. THERE IS NO 35 KT WIND RADII
FOR A 35 KT SYSTEM. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 070600Z3 IS
12 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 071500Z3 (DTG 071351Z7), 072100Z0 (DTG

REMARKS:
071500Z3 POSITION NEAR 13.3S7 96.7E2.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 26S HAS BEEN RELOCATED TO THE NORTH OF ITS LAST
POSITION.  RELOCATION IS DUE TO PARTIAL EXPOSURE OF THE LOW LEVEL
CIRCULATION CENTER AS CONVECTION IS PARTIALLY SHEARED TO THE WEST.
TC 26S HAS MOVED TO THE WEST-NORTHWEST AT 11 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 6
HOURS. WARNING POSITION BASED ON ANIMATED VISIBLE AND INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY. WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT
INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 25-30 KNOTS. THE SYSTEM HAS MAINTAINED
CONVECTION OVER THE LAST 6 HOURS AND HAS GOOD OUTFLOW ALOFT,
SOUTHWEST OF THE WARNING POSITION. FORECAST TRACK WILL CONTINUE TO
THE WEST-NORTHWEST FOR THE NEXT 12 HOURS THEN TURN TO THE WEST-
SOUTHWEST AND FOLLOW IN THE WAKE OF TC 25S (DAVINA). INTENSITY IS
EXPECTED TO DEVELOP SLOWLY FOR THE NEXT 24-36 HOURS AND THEN MORE
RAPIDLY AS IT CONTINUES TO ESTABLISH BETTER ORGANIZATION. WIND
RADII ARE GREATER TO THE SOUTH DUE TO THE STRONGER PRESSURE
GRADIENT AND CONVECTION IN THIS AREA. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 071200Z IS 12 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 072100Z0 (DTG

REMARKS:
072100Z0 POSITION NEAR 14.4S9 94.2E5.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 26S HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWEST AT 16 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST 6 HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES A
CONSOLIDATION OF THE CONVECTION SLIGHTLY FURTHER SOUTH THAN THE
PREVIOUS TRACK INDICATED. THE OVERALL SYSTEM IS STILL LOOSELY
ORGANIZED AND MULTIPLE LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTERS (LLCC) ARE
PROBABLE. FUTURE VISIBLE IMAGERY MAY LEAD TO POSSIBLE RELOCATION.
IMAGERY ALSO INDICATES A SLIGHT INCREASE IN VERTICAL WINDSHEAR ON
THE EASTERN SIDE WHILE OUTFLOW APPEARS TO HAVE IMPROVED. THE
WARNING POSITION AND INTENSITY (35 KTS) ARE BASED ON 071730Z8
INFRARED SATELLITE ANALYSIS TECHNIQUES. TC 26S IS FORECAST TO
CONTINUE A GENERAL WESTWARD TRACK THROUGH 36 HOURS UNDER THE
DOMINANT STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTH.
AT 48-72 HOURS THE MODELS ARE INDICATING A STRENGTHENING OF THE
ANTICYCLONE TO THE SOUTHWEST, HENCE THE SLIGHT NORTHWESTWARD TURN
LATE IN THE PERIOD. THIS TRACK SHOULD FOLLOW IN THE WAKE OF TC 25S
(DAVINA). TC 26S IS ALSO FORECAST TO DEVELOP AT A SLOWER THAN
NORMAL RATE THROUGH 48 HOURS DUE TO THE WINDSHEAR. AFTERWARDS, IT
SHOULD DEVELOP AT A NORMAL RATE AS IT MOVES INTO A MORE FAVORABLE
ENVIRONMENT AND BECOMES BETTER ORGANIZED. ALSO A TC (26S)
DEVELOPING WITHIN THE WAVE TRAIN OF ANOTHER TC (25S) HAS MORE
POTENTIAL TO INCREASE IN SIZE AND RAPIDLY DEVELOP ONCE IT BECOMES
BETTER ORGANIZED. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 071800Z6 IS
13 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 080300Z1 (DTG 080151Z5), 080900Z7 (DTG

TROPICAL CYCLONE 26S HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWEST AT 11 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST 6 HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES A
SYMMETRICAL MASS OF CONVECTION ABOUT 250NM BY 250NM. A 071636Z3
SCATTEROMETER PASS INDICATED 35KTS WITHIN THE CONVECTION, BUT
NO DEFINED LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). THE SYSTEM HAS
REMAINED INTACT FOR THE PAST 24 HOURS, BUT NO DOMINANT LLCC HAS
DEVELOPED. UPCOMING VISIBLE IMAGERY MAY YIELD MULTIPLE LLCC AND
POSSIBLE RELOCATION. IMAGERY ALSO INDICATES VERTICAL WINDSHEAR ON
THE EASTERN SIDE WHILE OUTFLOW APPEARS TO HAVE IMPROVED. THE
WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 072330Z5 INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY.
THIS IMAGERY INDICATES THE LLCC IS JUST NORTHEAST OF THE DEEP
CONVECTION. THE WARNING INTENSITY (35 KTS) IS BASED ON A
COMBINATION OF 072330Z5 INFRARED SATELLITE ANALYSIS TECHNIQUES
AND THE SCATTEROMETER PASS. TC 26S IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE A
GENERAL WESTWARD TRACK THROUGH THE PERIOD UNDER THE DOMINANT
STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTH. THE
TRACK WAS SHIFTED SLIGHTLY SOUTH INITIALLY TO HONOR PERSISTENCE.
TC 26S IS ALSO FORECAST TO DEVELOP AT A SLOWER THAN NORMAL RATE
THROUGH 48 HOURS DUE TO THE WINDSHEAR. AFTERWARDS, TC 26S SHOULD
DEVELOP AT A NORMAL RATE AS IT MOVES INTO A MORE FAVORABLE

REMARKS:
080900Z7 POSITION NEAR 15.8S4 91.3E3.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 26S HAS TRACKED WEST-SOUTHWEST AT 19 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 080530Z6
INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. ANIMATED VISIBLE AND INFRARED SATELLITE
IMAGERY INDICATES A SYMMETRICAL MASS OF CONVECTION ABOUT 250NM BY
250NM. A 071636Z3 SCATTEROMETER PASS INDICATED 35KTS WITHIN THE
CONVECTION, BUT NO EVIDENCE OF ANY LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER
(LLCC). VISIBLE IMAGERY HAS SHOWN A NEW BURST OF CONVECTION
DEVELOPING OVER THE WARNING POSITION, BUT STILL NO LLCC
DEVELOPMENT.  VERTICAL WINDSHEAR CONTINUES TO BE PRESENT IN THE
IMAGERY ON THE EASTERN SIDE WHILE OUTFLOW APPEARS TO HAVE IMPROVED.
A LARGE FIELD OF STRATOCUMULUS CLOUDS IS EVIDENT TO THE SOUTH OF
THE SYSTEM, AND COLD AIR FROM THIS AREA IS BEING ENTRAINED INTO THE
SYSTEM. THE WARNING INTENSITY (35 KTS) IS BASED ON A COMBINATION OF
SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES AND THE SCATTEROMETER PASS.
TC 26S IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE ON A WESTWARD TRACK THROUGH THE
FORECAST PERIOD UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE SUBTROPICAL
RIDGE TO THE SOUTH. TC 26S IS ALSO FORECAST TO DEVELOP SLOWLY
THROUGH 48 HOURS DUE TO THE WINDSHEAR AND COLDER AIR BEING
ENTRAINED INTO THE SYSTEM. TC 26S SHOULD DEVELOP AT A NORMAL RATE
AS IT MOVES INTO A MORE FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENT AND BECOMES BETTER
ORGANIZED. WIND RADII ARE BASED ON AN AVERAGE SIZED TROPICAL
CYCLONE AND THE PRESSURE GRADIENT BETWEEN THE SYSTEM AND THE RIDGE
TO THE SOUTH. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 080600Z4 IS 14

TROPICAL CYCLONE 26S HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 17 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 081130Z3 VISIBLE
AND INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY. ANIMATED VISIBLE AND INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATE CONVECTION HAS DISSIPATED AND A
PARTIALLY EXPOSED, BROAD LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER(LLCC)IS
EVIDENT. VERTICAL WINDSHEAR CONTINUES TO BE PRESENT IN THE IMAGERY,
INHIBITING DEVELOPMENT. A LARGE FIELD OF STRATOCUMULUS CLOUDS IS
EVIDENT TO THE SOUTH OF THE SYSTEM, AND COLDER AIR FROM THIS AREA
IS BEING ENTRAINED INTO THE SYSTEM FURTHER INHIBITING DEVELOPMENT.
THE WARNING INTENSITY (30 KTS) IS BASED ON SATELLITE CURRENT
INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF 25 KNOTS. TC 26S IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE ON
A WEST-SOUTHWESTWARD TRACK THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD UNDER THE
STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTH. TC 26S IS
ALSO FORECAST TO WEAKEN TO 25 KNOTS THROUGH 48 HOURS DUE TO THE
WINDSHEAR AND COLDER AIR BEING ENTRAINED INTO THE SYSTEM, THEN
INTENSIFY AS IT ORGANIZES AND MOVES INTO A MORE FAVORABLE
ENVIRONMENT FOR DEVELOPMENT. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
081200Z1 IS 14 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 082100Z1 (DTG 081951Z4),
090300Z2 (DTG 090151Z6), 090900Z8 (DTG 090751Z2) AND 091500Z5 (DTG

REMARKS:
090300Z2 POSITION NEAR 15.1S7  87.2E7.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 26S HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 10 KNOTS OVER
THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION AND INTENSITY ARE BASED ON
PERSISTENCE WITH THE PREVIOUS FORECASTS. ANIMATED INFRARED AND
WATER VAPOR IMAGERY STILL FAIL TO DISCERN THE LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER (LLCC) PREVIOUSLY ASSOCIATED WITH TC 26S, BUT DO INDICATE
SCATTERED DEEP CONVECTION HAS REFORMED. HOWEVER, 082342Z9 MICROWAVE
IMAGERY SUGGESTS NO LLCC IS PRESENT. TC 26S IS FORECAST TO TRACK
WESTWARD UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO
ITS SOUTH. HOWEVER, DUE TO THE LACK OF A DISCERNABLE LLCC BENEATH
THE CONVECTION, THE FORECAST PHILOSOPHY HAS CHANGED. THE FORECAST
TRACK ONLY EXTENDS TO 36 HOURS AND THE FORECAST INTENSITY HAS BEEN
REDUCED AS TC 26S IS NOW FORECAST TO DISSIPATE OVER WATER WITHIN
THE NEXT 36 HOURS. ALTHOUGH ANIMATED VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY IS
NECESSARY TO CONFIRM NO LLCC EXISTS, WITHOUT THE LLCC, FURTHER
DEVELOPMENT IS IMPROBABLE. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT
090000Z9 IS 12 FEET. REFER TO WWIO30 PGFW FOR ADDITIONAL SEA HEIGHT
INFORMATION. NEXT WARNINGS AT 090900Z8 (DTG 090751Z2), 091500Z5

REMARKS:
090900Z8 POSITION NEAR 13.2S6   83.8E9.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 26S HAS TRACKED TOWARDS THE WEST AT 20 KNOTS 
DURING THE PAST 6 HOURS. THE WARNING POSITION IS BASED ON 090530Z7
VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY. THE WARNING INTENSITY IS BASED ON 
SATELLITE CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES OF T2.0 (30 KNOTS) AND 
CONTINUITY WITH THE PREVIOUS WARNING. RECENT VISIBLE SATELLITE 
IMAGERY HAS FAILED TO REVEAL ANY SIGNIFICANT LOW LEVEL CIRCULATION 
CENTER (LLCC). A WEAK AND COMPLETELY SEPARATED LLCC WAS FOUND 180NM 
EAST-NORTHEAST OF THE PRIMARY CONVECTION. TC 26S HAS CONTINUED TO 
TRACK UNDER THE STEERING INFLUECE OF THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE 
SOUTH. THIS DOMINANT STEERING FLOW IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TO TRACK 
THE LLCC AND THE CONVECTION QUICKLY TOWARDS THE WEST DURING THE 
ENTIRE FORECAST PERIOD. THIS RAPID FORWARD MOVEMENT OF THE SYSTEM 
AND MODERATE WESTWARD SHEAR IS EXPECTED TO INHIBIT FURTHER 
DEVELOPMENT. MIXING WITH COLD AIR STRATUS TO THE SOUTH OF THE 
SYSTEM WILL ALSO DETER SIGNIFICANT DEVELOPMENT. THOUGH ANIMATED 
SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES GOOD OUTFLOW OVER THE PRIMARY 
CONVECTION, TC 26S IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE TO WEAKEN DURING THE 
NEXT 24 HOURS, FINALLY DISSIPATING OVER WATER BY THE END OF THE 24 
HOUR FORECAST PERIOD. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT AT 090600Z5 
IS 12 FEET. REFER TO WWIO30 PGFW FOR ADDITIONAL SEA HEIGHT 
INFORMATION. THIS IS THE FINAL WARNING ON THIS SYSTEM BY THE JOINT 
TYPHOON WARNING CENTER (NAVPACMETOCCEN PEARL HARBOR). THE SYSTEM 
WILL BE CLOSELY MONITORED FOR SIGNS OF REGENERATION IF CONDITIONS 
BECOME MORE FAVORABLE. REFER TO TROPICAL CYCLONE  25S (DAVINA) 
WARNINGS (WTXS32 PGTW) FOR TWELVE-HOURLY UPDATES.//
